The Haunting on High Street

Oct 31, 2019

To the Editor:

There is a discarded sofa on High Street that town officials, for months, appear comfortable in ignoring several requests to remove it. Some mischievous trick or treaters decided to highlight the demise of the sofa with hope of bringing attention to this blight on their neighborhood.

Shall the mischief continue and we will find a turkey at Thanksgiving and Santa taking a much needed rest at Christmas?

Only time will tell...or is it telling of the lack of interest from town officials regarding keeping our town clean and free of trash, including furniture, strewn about on our streets and sidewalks.
